Description

Class Experience

Students will gain an understanding of the humor and Elizabethan attitudes through listening to and rewriting A Midsummer Night's Dream.  They will also learn how to summarize and chose important parts of the plot.  They will be familiar with the characters and the plot. 
I have directed this pay over 10 times with actors as young as 8 and as old as 17.  
Students will need a way to write their ideas-- on paper or digitally.
Informal assessment through peer and teacher feedback and success of final production.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Note:  In the original version, there are sexual scenes and references.  There is also some violence.  The version we wil be reading is toned down.  There will be talk of love and marriage, and a fight scene, but any references to sex will be eliminated.
